Abstract :

Nigerian states have become increasingly competitive for economic support from the central government, particularly in resource allocation, the establishment of industries and state quota allocation. The extent of competition has been heightened by the rivalries created when new states are formed from older states and when migrants are discriminated against when they transfer to a new state. The National Council for Intergovernmental Relations was established to settle these conflicts.
